“On the fifth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me
Five golden rings
Four calling birds
Three french hens
Two turtle doves and
A partridge in a pear tree.”
Ever since I got married and more so since I had Emma, I had wanted a nativity scene. There is something about the visual and the palpable that makes Christmas more real for everyone, especially when you have little ones in the house.
So I was delighted when we were invited to review for the Christmas Boutique and not only that, I was allowed to choose a product of my choice. As you can imagine, it didn’t take me long to decide on the product, it took me a bit longer to decide on the colour for our nativity set, as they come not only in burgundy but also in pink, green and black and gold.
As soon as I put it out, it got loads of attention and questions from Emma. She wanted to pet baby Jesus, to play with the wise men and know why baby Jesus was only covered with a little blankie while Mary had “a blanket” over herself. Very good conversation starters and opportunities to talk about different cultures, different times and eras…etc.
Our nativity set got a lot of compliments on Instagram and on my Facebook page as well. I had friends asking about it, its price and its quality. So, here goes: our burgundy set sells on the website for £34.99 but the green set is at the moment discounted and sells for only £24.49.
I had a look tonight at their sales page and I have my eye now on their silver mosaic star, a beautiful reminder for our precious little Star above:
Disclaimer: We were send the nativity scene to review and keep. We love it and would warmly recommend it as a quality product to any family with small children, as a sturdy and beautiful center piece for the Christmas table.
